Librarians:

  • Vision and literacy are closely related, a child who has poor vision will likely struggle with reading.  Not only that, many children find comfort in books about other kids who are facing similar situations, and getting glasses is no exception!  We would love if you would consider putting up a display of books related to kids and glasses for the Great Glasses Play Day, or do a story time with stories on that topic.  There are some good lists of books about kids and glasses at Between the Lines and Little Four Eyes.

Others:

  • Spread the word, let any friends or family with kids in glasses know about the day
  • Like us on Facebook
  • Drop us a line at GGPD@shinypebble.com with other ideas of how you could help.
  • Check out our Great Glasses Play Day store to get a shirt, hat, or even water bottle!
